Intermediate Division Ages 6-12

Students in Intermediate 1 will build their skills and knowledge of dance and classical ballet by learning awareness of their arms, heads and body placement along with more complex movements of the feet and legs.  

Students in Intermediate 2 begin adding basic turns and jumps to their movement vocabulary while they build strength, control and awareness for the carriage of their bodies.

In Intermediate 3, emphasis is placed on strength, flexibility and rhythm, as well as mastery of the basic skills, body placement and classical positions.

Students begin learning jazz in our Intermediate Division, which aids in diversifying their movement quality. Emphasis is on the enjoyment of dance within the framework and regimen of classical ballet training. In Intermediate 3, students are encouraged to study modern dance along with jazz, providing an introduction to contemporary dance and knowledge as they grow into strong diverse dancers. Students are recommended to take 2 ballet classes and 1 jazz class per week, with gentlemen adding Boys 2 to their classes. Students at this level should expect to stay in each level for 1-2 years.

A Special Note for Girls/Young Ladies Girls/Young Ladies tights serve as underwear beneath their leotards, be sure to buy dance tights which have a cotton crotch. Underwear inhibit movement and are not allowed under tights. We know this can be a bit of a surprise for younger dancers, but they adjust quickly.
A Special Note for Boys/Young Men Boys and men should always wear dance briefs or a dance belt under their tights. These items serve the same purpose as a jockstrap and protect a male dancer from injury. You can purchase dance briefs and dance belts from Boulder Body Wear.

Help avoid an uncomfortable situation for your dancer by explaining these aspects of ballet dress code ahead of time, and arrive to class in proper attire. This will also prepare them for our year-end Gala and other performances as they progress.
